Quick question aj. I'll be in Vegas next week; if I place a bet, how do I collect when I'm back in NYC?
You know, I'm not entirely sure. Legally, I would think
you have to present the ticket at the sportsbook to collect. Or, maybe give it to someone you trust (HA!) to collect for you when you win...? Fairly certain it has to be an in-person transaction and they won't process it via the mail or electronic means.
Following the passage of UIGEA, there are very few online sportsbooks still accepting online wagers from US citizens. Bodog was probably the biggest that has held on the longest, but I think even they are leaving the US market at the end of 2011.
The gubmint thinks we need to be protected from ourselves...until they can regulate and tax
the industry, of course.
